Pikaia Lodge's Vessels
The M.Y. Pikaia I
Pikaia's exclusive 105-ft Yacht
for the most complete and comfortable Day Tour experience. A
level of comfort never before achieved in Galapagos.
The M.Y. Pikaia I
is Pikaia's private 105-Ft. oceangoing exploration yacht, a former
custom built steel-hull live aboard scuba diving cruiser.
Refitted in October 2015, its large dive-deck has been re-designed
for an optimal land and snorkeling day tour operation. It is
the only such vessel in the Galapagos, offering a comfortable,
safe and relaxing day tour experience.
Due to its size, weight and
stabilizers, guests can cruise to nearby islands without feeling
seasick, as can happen on smaller, lighter day tour boats.

The M.B. Pikaia II
The Pikaia II is
Pikaia's exclusively chartered 35 foot boat, designed to offer a guided
coastal fishing and/or snorkeling tour experience around the
island of Santa Cruz.
The Pikaia II will
take a maximum of eight Pikaia Lodge guests on day tours, where
Galapagos fishermen share their traditional fishing techniques.
In the 7 night exploration program, guests could have the
opportunity to hone their fishing skills using fishing rods*.
They can catch-and-release, or choose one fish to take back to the
Lodge to be freshly prepared by our chefs. After fishing, guests
can swim, snorkel and relax in lagoons and beaches. These
spectacular and pristine sites are full of marine life, rarely
visited by tourists.
*Special conditions apply to the
fishing and snorkeling programs of the M.B. Pikaia II.
This new fishing-tourism model
has been recently approved and promoted by the National Park as a
sustainable economic alternative for local fishermen, by
incorporating them into eco-tourism.
Pikaia Lodge supports this
sustainable initiative and has worked with local fishermen to
incorporate them into its Santa Cruz Island exploration programs.
The Pikaia II fishing boat is specially-equipped for the comfort
and safety of our guests. The crew is comprised of local
fishermen, who we have trained for operating to our standards.
